The Jalopy Journal
Hi there, re the '64 Galaxie, is this car still available?
This is Garry Pedersen giving it heaps at Pukekohe. Check out the body roll!
For anyone interested, here is a neat in-car video of the above posted Stuart Special, owned by the Quertier family, racing around the Teretonga...
The first two pics I posted of Stewart Quertier's '39 Deluxe are from the late 1960s. In around 1970 Stewart sold the coupe to purchase this...
Another shot of Glen Jones, also at Pukekohe.
Hey guys, glad you're enjoying 'em. I have plenty more yet. This is Glen Jones, in his '39 Deluxe, which he raced mostly in the upper North Island...
A real mixed bag this one. Heading the field, and throwing his '38 Chevy coupe sideways into the corner is George Dixon. He road-raced several...

In New Zealand, there were no 1940 Fords, due to the War. Imports stopped in 1939, but that still gives you lots of options.
Nice work! Did you put that together Greg?
Paul, thanks for that!
Time for another update. Magoo's have split the front wishbones, and fabbed up new locator points. The front cross-member where the front spring...
I quite like this look myself:
Paul, the diff will be a Banjo. My original closed Banjo won't work, so need to use a newer open Banjo centre section.
Hey you guys, thanks heaps for that.
Wow, they really made a big difference. Does it ride better now?
Man, I LOVE this car, those wheels and the stance are perfect!
I'm trying to resist the urge to buy a Galaxie, but this thread isn't helping.
This is the beautiful engine mount Magoo's made from scratch.
Really? Thats criminal!
Wow, that F100 is incredible! Do you still have it?
Thanks heaps Kev, I appreciate that mate. Sorry for all the text, I just started out writing a few details, and it turned into a marathon.
Hey guys, thanks heaps for the great feedback.
Dago 88, yeah the Olds motors are super rare here too. Mine is a 1955 324ci. I don't know how it...
I want to do as much work on this car as I can, but I decided to get Magoo’s Street Rods to do the fabrication work on the chassis. The Olds...
There was one car in particular that inspired my build, Bob Licks ’40 Std coupe. This car to me is as good as it gets. Bobs ’40...
My plans started out pretty straight forward. I’d reassemble the ’38, lower the suspension, hop up the Flathead. Then, I decided I...
Sorry for the wall of text, I realise this is a bit of a novel, I didn’t mean to write my entire life story, but for anyone with a few spare...
Wow, Hispano, you're a very talented dude! Great work, I love it.
Now, I have a question for you about early French cars. I know a guy here in...
